Happy Thursday, everyone! We have a cute challenge today at Inspired By:
Isn't that fun? And here's the optional sketch, which I didn't use this week:
I do have a couple of sets with punny sentiments, and I actually made two cards! Let me show you the one that I liked the most!! It uses a really old SU set with vintage images called Puns from the Past:
I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches:
I wanted a vintage feel to my card as well, so I stamped the sewing machine in Soft Suede and the matching sentiment in Bumblebee, mounting it on an Crumb Cake mat embossed with the retired Quilt Top EF:
And since I've used at least three patterned papers, I am also entering this in the Sparkles Monthly challenge!
And here's the other card I made that didn't make the cut, LOL! It uses an equally-as-old Crafty Secrets stamp set featuring coffee and tea themes!
It's cute, but it just wasn't "speaking" to me like I wanted!!
So, what punny sentiment will you find to use on a card today? They always bring a smile to a recipient's face, so get stamping and show us what you create! Check out all the DT's creations at the Inspired By blog to get some more inspiration! Thanks for popping in today!
Cassidy got a new bike for her birthday!!
Dana told me they had a difficult time finding one in the stores or online; this was the last one in stock at one store! I thought that was odd, but then I watched a PBS blurb about a local bike shop; first they were so slow due to Covid that they thought they would have to close altogether. Then suddenly there was a high demand for bikes as people were doing more outside activities! So that caused a bike shortage, and to make it worse, the factories were not producing bicycles or even parts to repair old bikes, so the bike shop owner found himself scrambling to get inventory to meet his demand! So the struggle Dana had to find a bike was understandable! Of course, it couldn't be pink or purple either! I think this is a terrific color myself! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
